. >> bill: yeah, right. and then we remember rick santorum. he does have this man on dog -- we know -- when it comes to anything gay. >> marriage is what marriage is. marriage existed before there was a government. it is like saying this glass of water is a glass of beer. it's a glass of water. and water is what water is. american is what marriage is. >> bill: why don't you understand that? >> rick santorum is a loser. but i will say rick santorum thinks about gay sex more than i do and i'm a gay man. [ laughter ] i just had four thoughts about it right now. he had 12. [ laughter ] >> bill: he does seem -- >> i don't even wear sweater vests. [ laughter ] >> shut up! >> but yours is an homage for the stroll down memory lane. [ laughter ] >> bill: he does seem to have a fixation on gay sex doesn't he? >> if you could define his life in kansas, the only thing he accomplished in this entire campaign was fixing his google problem. so now when you google rick santorum -- by definition, only the third entry on goog
santorum all be crowned somebody who is going to get the nomination for the republican party. didn't happen. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides,
santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you. >> thank you, reverend. >> what ails the party, in your opinion? >> i think we haven't reached out, and i think gale marriage is trending, and for whatever reason, this obsession with social issue says killing us. it was a difficult night, and one of the most popular things i've ever tweeted, and i think this is a harsh reality that we're facing right now. but i'm not shocked or surprised. i knew this when my father lost. i've been ostracized from my party, that i've discussed this with you before. if you're not going to start accepting people like me, this party is going to die. >>> now, hogan, let me first start with the same question. what in your opinion is ailing your party? >> i think really one of the stats from election night shocked me. it was george h.w. bush won 60% of the white vote in 1988. me got over 400 electoral votes. mitt romney did the same thing. he got crushed. i think there are three reasons this thing went so badly. one is because we have some type of -- we have decided either to ignore or to
? the answer will be, the other choices were rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum. at the end of the day, the tea party had spoken. so they nominated mitt romney. >> you heard maher joking that romney is so out of touch he's from outer space. check out this tweet from john kerry. quote, surprised to run into mitt in ohio, a snapshot of some makeshift robot. and actor will farrell stepped up his campaign for obama in a new web video with a list of questionable incentives to encourage people to vote. >> if you agree to vote in this year's election i will personally give you a tattoo. fair warning, i do not know how to draw. i'll do a dance just for you. that was just a taste. if you want the full buffet, you're going to have to vote. if you vote, i'll eat anything you tell me to. garbage, hair, human under -- human toe nails. underpants. i don't care. vote obama. it's a slam dunk. i made you this. it's an owl. who, who. >> convinced? up next, clinton the closer. if president obama wins on tuesday night, he can thank former president bill clinton. he may be the one to push president obama o
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po
. romney does not have a clue. he should have lost in 2012 to rick santorum. however, he is flip-floping every issue from the primaries. american people have some of the brightest minds. why don't they see he is a fraud? america is not for sale. >> i take your voting for president obama. host: republican calller. william, north carolina. caller: i was going to vote for obama, but i am real religious, and i do not agree with the same-sex marriage. the unemployment has gone up. i've been out of a job for two years. i've just been crying about it. . the change i have is all the change in my pocket. did you vote for president obama in 2008? caller: no, i did not. host: next calller. caller: thank you for taking my call. i would like to echo what billy graham has written. the legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. i realize this election could be my last. i believe it is vitally important we cast our candidates on -- -- that we support the nation of israel. support the typical definition of marriage between a man and woman. host: is th
house. that primary ballot that was so bruises with rick santorum fan newt gingrich and an occasional rick perry shot. then he raised a lot of money throughout the country. headed into three critical debates. the first debate in denver focused the attention of the country on him and on his campaign. now all of that stuff is on the table for the american people to decide whether this man will be their next president. martha: governor romney and his wife ann have placed their votes. an historic moment for them, for their family. ann romney has been right by her husband's side throughout this process. she has been called at points the mitt stabilizer. the one brought in to be her husband's inspiration and comfort and strength and he would say the many the role she played throughout his life. early on you have to remember the mid-section of this race when the charge against him was he was not connecting with voters. he in the last several the weeks and certainly since the debate in denver which was a huge breakout moment for him, was connecting with these crowds in a way we did not see ea
. martha roy. rick santorum. aaron shock. jim tallant. john thune. pat tome. scott walker. mike turner. steve chabis. from the great state of ohio, mary tyalor. mary taylor. >> four more years! four more years! >> are we ready to do everything we can in ohio 2 elective mitt romney and paul ryan, the next president and vice president of the united states? [cheers and applause] as always, a great crowd of the intro west chester, ohio. this is outstanding. i have done a lot of great rallies over the last couple of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided
as evangelicals, supported rick santorum over mitt romney, many uneasy on his views like abortion and his moremmon faith >> you originally said that the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives, done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: iowa's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp here in traditionally democratic dubuque, catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, contraception and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues, which many catholics, most catholics hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this bloef that remains that within the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i just think it comes down to that tepgs. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and i -- the group of nuns that i'm associated with to this day are pushing for obama. >> is the pro choice stance difficult for you to reconcile? >> it was difficult. i
santorum and we can do that. and that's a natural inclination of evangelicals but in the end we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom, that will recognize the importance of the family and to the point of the caller made about the difference between the inner city families and he made some allusion to the white caucasian family has access to more government support. actually what strengthens the opportunitieso that children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up with. unfortunately, what we've seen in the inner city that we now are at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raise bid single parents and so they're missing that influence that most -- in most cases of a father. and that's important. it's important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man they learn how to control their masculinity, they learn their socialization skills from their father. and then that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth and is one of the main factors in causing youn
, they overwhelmingly backed santorum, but it seems that they moved into that romney camp, largely because they will oppose obama strongly on the same-sex marriage, and funding for contraception. now the religious vote, when you talk about catholic voters in dubuque, they were not traditionally in the vote, they seem to be split more because how outspoken the president has been on those social issues and health care reform. i will tell you that neither of the groups we have talked to have been thrilled, necessarily, with their choices right now. and i think that is something that is very important, the enthusiasm, to get out to the polls, don was saying that every single vote counts in ohio and here. you need that enthusiasm, and we're not necessarily feeling that in iowa, fred. >> all right, poppy harlow, in dubuque. >>> all right, a critical swing state, yes, florida qualifies. we'll tell you about a sometimes overlooked voting block that could make a difference in the sunshine state. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the
. this is really important. 24 liberty torches with the convicts corporate mitt romney and rick santorum had zero torches out of 24. newt gingrich had four liberty torches out of 24. barack obama had 16 liberty torches out of 24. my hero, ron paul, 18 liberty torches out of 24. and gary johnson had 21 out of 24. [applause] >> okay. [laughter] anybody with a rebuttal? i guess you all agree on that. we go to question no. six. we will, by the way, have a discussion on this and two- minute closing comments. we will start with a rocky. it was selected by my editorial team. but in the post to facebook, he asks -- we start with rocky. if you had the opportunity to write one constitutional amendment with an absolute guarantee it would be approved by congress and then following that, what would you amend? >> i have already written it -- please take a look at our website -- it is the new equal rights amendment promising that equal rights under law and will never be a bridge on account of gender or sexual orientation. [applause] it is time we had federal protection for members of our community lgbt and proh
time and a lot of money. the governor didn't win a lot of caucuses it went to senator santorum. the economy is very important here, like the rest of the country. immigration and also energy, but, yes, they both spent quite a bit of time here. the president, in fact, mete made 13 stops here, the most visits of any president, ever, making it here in colorado. >> i wonder, alicia, if there is a reason for that. if there is anything the president learned that filtered into his strategy for his 2012 run. did anything come from colorado? >> actually, this is something that ax a, one of the president's advisers talked about, early on in the run up to the re-election. this is early on, part of the strategy, as part of the 2012 run, modeled after the 2010 senate race, won by democrat michael bennett. senator ben bennett wofs know of the a handful of democrats who faired well on the election day, 2 years ago. he won by 29,000 votes when he beat the favorite, ken buck. the strategy by bennett, target hispanics, target scbem frame your opponent as an extremist. that's something that the pr
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore. [laughter]
decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would elect the vice president, so under this scenario your most likely outcome romney/biden. >> then we'll know we're in an alternate reality. chuck, let's move on to florida. if it came down to florida being the deciding state, how might that play how the? >> well, here's the issue with florida right now, and this has to do with election challenges, and i'll just put it here to center it up a little bit. there were two big issues in the state of florida this year that came up. one is in palm beach county where 60,000 absentee
minted front-runner rick perry. >> rick santorum now leads the national polls. >> newt gingrich surges to the top of the gop field. >> campaign in full throttle mode. >> on the attack, the gloves come off and the candidates come out swinging. >> can we drop a little bit of the pious baloney. >> rick, again. >> i'm speaking, i'm speaking. >> contentious gop presidential debate. >> she says you asked her, sir, to enter into an open marriage. would you like to take some time to respond to that. >> i am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that. >> 10,000 bucks. >> i'm not in the betting business. >> okay. >> my 999 plan is a bold solution. >> three agencies of governor when i get there that are gone, commerce, education and -- and let's see. oops. >> the newest claim of sexual misconduct against herman cain. >> i am suspending the campaign. >> suspending the campaign. >> i have decided to stand aside. >> a better america begins tonight. >> mitt romney wanted to shake up his candidacy, and he has. >> next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. >> we
, would it have been better to have gingrich or santorum or perry or bachmann? who was the alternative at least this time around? who was it? >> i personally would say jon huntsman would have had the best chance. he couldn't get through the primary process. >> because they couldn't see his values. >> also, they started their campaign off doing something you probably shouldn't do, kicking your own party around. >> are you forgetting the hermanator? >> as richard said, the primary process rewards extremes in many cases. so how could a guy like -- let's say jeb bush, this is just for argument's sake, 2016, how does he get through a primary process given his stances on things like immigration? can jeb bush survive that process? >> jeb bush can survive it, chris christie can survive it. it's just what i say on immigration reform. you don't go half in. you don't stick your toe in the water and then have a blogger write something nasty about you, then pull it back. you keep going in and you crush the blogger and you keep moving. and if somebody that's an extremist on talk radio attacks you, y
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
